Retail investors are a growing force in capital markets. They are shifting their behaviors toward building wealth over time and becoming more sophisticated in their investing approach. They are displaying confidence in their skills, diversifying investments, and looking to explore new asset classes. By developing a better understanding of their motivations and needs, brands can uncover growth opportunities.
According to research from The World Economic Forum, 74% of retail investors would invest more if they had additional opportunities to learn about investing. Modern investors learn by doing, and seek advice and information from their communities. Being time-poor, retail investors need an education that serves their needs – always on, multi-channel, bite-sized, and easy to digest. Better-informed retail investors make better portfolio decisions, which lead to using more investment products and services.
Trust in the financial system and investing platforms is cited as one of the most common obstacles that hold people back from investing. In times of uncertainty, consumers turn to brands they trust. Helping retail investors navigate the markets will reward brands with a loyal customer base. This means meeting investors where they are and having conversations they want to have. Help retail investors discover your brand at the right time and empower them to take action by offering high-quality educational content that they value.
